  • Going multichannel will improve customer experience -- but not without a plan

    Companies today know they can't get by with just a call center. And they know adding a website alone won't help much. They know where it's at: to improve customer experience, they'll also need a social media presence, a mobile app -- and they'll need to be reachable by text. A tall order, but nothing technology won't fix, right?

To conclude, Banafsheh Ghassemi provides tangible steps companies can take to understand the complete customer experience. Continue Reading
